So after finishing a run in my favorite field I looked at the truck and noticed that the tires were wer and got some mud on the drive shafts and the arms attached to the wheel, I thought the grass was dry before running
Other than cleaning up the mess that I have now around the wheels (mud), is there anything else I should do to prevent any further damage?
I checked the electronics and everything underneath the body didn't get wet. Should I just wd40 all over the truck?
you worry about it as if it's ''papier mache'' edition rather then brushless edition. Just give it a wipe with a damp cloth if you dont like your truck being a bit muddy and that is it. Dont put wd40 as it will collect dust after. Sometimes i run my on the field after the grass was being cut and my car needs a proper hose pipe shower after... If you decide to do smth like that try not to get your electrics wet obviously and better keep water away from wheel bearings (but even that is not critical). these trucks are well made and what you have just mentioned is nothing to it. Remember that standard revo is virtually waterprof incl. electrics

sometimes i have a lot of dried dirt on my axles and tires. The only way to get it off is to run it in damp conditions (water puddle on a driveway) or take it to the sink with a tooth brush.
I come back from running in a sand pit it has rained today and my truck was covered of wet sand. I just removed all the electronic and trowed the truck in the shower. Now it's clean
